There are many advantages to having a pet. For example, taking care of a pet can teach people responsibility, which is new to many university students. In addition, pets can keep people company and are well-known for making people happy.
While there are many reasons for having a pet, keeping one illegally in the dorms can be problematic. First of all, some students may be allergic to pets. Secondly, some dorm mates may not care for the way the pet smells. Thirdly, many pets are loud and may disturb the other residents in your dorm or hall.
For many universities, students keeping pets in the dormitories is against the rules. Despite this, some students choose to have a pet at university. However, I don't believe that it's a good idea to keep a pet in the dormitories.
Some people believe that keeping pets is a good thing to do.They believe that pets,like cats and dogs,can help reduce the loneliness in their daily life .They also argue that keeping pets helps mankind understand animals' world and develop positive feelings toward them.
Others,however,hold the opposite view.They think keeping pets as a useless but harmful thing to do.First,pets can transmit diseases.Secondly,the noises of pets are sources of pollution.Last but not least,as many rare birds and animals are kept as pets,they will surely be hunted on a large scale,which means a threat to the balance of the ecosystem.
Weighing the arguments of both sides,I am inclined to agree with the latter.Anyway,we can lessen our loneliness and express our love toward animals in other ways.And it is my belief that only by placing man and other species on an equal basis can we expect to have a lively and colorful world.
